Bramwood is a self-catering bungalow on the Gower Peninsula near Swansea in South Wales. It has recently been re-designed as an accessible holiday destination for disabled families seeking a quiet get-away in a beautiful location close to the stunning Rhossili Bay and the city of Swansea.
At the Swansea Bay Tourism Awards 2017, Bramwood Holiday Homes have been awarded the Best Self Catering Accommodation, and Bramwood’s Suzanne Morrison has been awarded Best Individual Tourism Ambassador for promoting the destination to visitors with a range of disabilities and working tirelessly to make Swansea Bay accessible to all.
Suzanne Morrison, said:
“Bramwood Accessible Bungalow would like to thank all of our guests who nominated us for the award, because without our wonderful guests we would not exist as a business, so taking care of them is a priority at Bramwood.
“I would also like to thank Tourism Swansea Bay who have been there right from the start, when other holiday companies were telling us we were mad. They have been there for advice and guidance from the beginning, pointing us in the right direction at all times as I had never done anything like this before.
“The person who deserves the most thanks also is our Manager Robert Blewett who started with us in 2010 after I nearly died. He has been there through every development, and Bramwood is a tribute to his dedication and belief that we need accessible holiday homes everywhere.
“We are now building up a network of Gower businesses who we direct our guests to with the knowledge they are accessible places to visit as an attraction or to sample the fantastic food.
“I also need to thank my husband Malcolm Morrison and our son John Philip Morrison. John is the inspiration behind Bramwood. John has quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy and requires 24/7/365 care, we therefore know what it takes to book a holiday without equipment and care.”
Suzanne continues to work tirelessly in making Swansea Bay accessible to all, adding:
“I will be looking for support to make Swansea, Gower and Neath Port Talbot truly accessible to everyone.
“We have until 2021 to put this into place, but we need more Changing Places toilets to carry the message, not only in the great city of Swansea and in Gower, but beyond our local county borders.
“I have faith in a city that I have known all my life. I am a Port Talbot girl who went to Glanafan School, and lived in Baglan. I am also Welsh to the core and proud of Wales and what we can achieve together. I went on holiday to the Gower when there we no facilities, and I am passionate about promoting its unique features to everyone now. when there were no accessible facilities, but I am passionate about promoting the area to everyone.
“Come on board and support us, local families and future guests using our holiday homes, beaches, restaurants, and public houses who need Changing Places facilities.”
